Ericsson Radio awarded for infrastructure innovation
Network giant takes home CommsMEA ‘Network Infrastructure Initiative of the Year’ award for 2019
Ericsson has won the ‘Network Infrastructure Initiative of the Year’ award at CommsMEA Awards 2019 for its Ericsson Radio System (ERS) for 5G.
The Awards are an annual fete organised by this site’s sister brand CommsMEA.
Chafic Traboulsi, head of networks at Ericsson Middle East and Africa said: “It is an honour to be named Network Infrastructure Initiative of the Year for our Ericsson Radio System for 5G. Smart network operators are not just waiting for 5G, they are preparing their networks and building the capacity and quality for the new functionality that 5G connectivity will offer. To do that, they need efficient and flexible solutions to make the journey to 5G easier.”
The Ericsson Radio System (ERS) for 5G is designed to fit all site types and traffic scenarios, even as networks grow in scale and complexity from 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G. The platform delivers a combination of performance, small site footprint and low energy consumption. All ERS products-4 million radios deployed worldwide since 2015-are ready to switch on 5G.
Ericsson’s 5G-ready Radio System also allows service providers to explore new use cases and business models as well as capture new revenue streams through addressing industry digitalisation. The company is extending the Ericsson Radio System to deliver new radio access products and functionality to smooth operators’ transformation journey to 5G. ERS extensions deliver an end-to-end 5G access system which includes a portfolio of 5G NR radios.
